New Knovel Interface

Knovel, Search box

The new interface for the Knovel database is more streamlined than the old. The site opens to a search box, which examples showing different ways to search rotating through the box:
  • sensor networks (finds uses of the words sensor and networks)
  • "uv stabilizers" (finds uses of the phrase uv stabilizers)
  • title: military handbook (finds a book with the words military handbook in the title)
  • author: yaws (finds a book with an author with the name Yaws)
  • ferment* (finds uses of the words ferment, ferments, fermented, fermenting, fermentation)
  • and more.
The simplest way to find material is to just start typing.  You'll retrieve chapters from the hundreds of science and technology books available online through our Knovel subscription.

If you want to see lists of the books available by subject, click on "browse" in the toolbar at the top of the page.
